Once upon a time, in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, a German immigrant named Jacob Leinenkugel came upon a source of pure spring water and 2,500 thirsty lumberjacks. So like his ancestors before him—and with his wife, Josephine, working tirelessly alongside—Jacob started brewing beer. A family affair from the beginning, the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company has kept the taps flowing for over 150 years. Has it been easy? Heck no!
